Re: [AMBER-Developers] Problems building a rpm for Amber11 + AmberTools 1.5

Can you try building with the "-nopython" flag to configure? The problem
here is that Amber 11 and AmberTools 1.5 is not easily relocatable.
 Wherever this RPM goes, though, a standard Python (that is the same 2.x
version for each machine) is needed.

I would also suggest building it in something like /usr/local or some other
standard location that will exist on every machine.

I've never tried this, though, so I can't speak for sure. Hopefully Amber
12 will be better in this regard...
